The way the weather's been, you're ready to go ice fishing one week and swimming the next.

The new year means one thing to high school softball and baseball coaches across Florida – time to get out the gloves, bats and balls and start practicing.

Chiefland High softball took to the field for the first time Wednesday. Veteran coach Wayne Weatherford was lucky to have some nice weather for his girls to work out in.

Chiefland High Baseball tryouts will start at 3 p.m. this coming Monday. Anyone wishing to come out for the team should first get paperwork at the front office.

Coach Kyle Parnell was out working on the field this past Monday.

"It always looks rough this time of year,"he said. "We're putting out some rye seed and sprinklers so it will look green. We got our clay in."

Chiefland baseball will host preseason games in early February with Bronson and Trenton coming to town.

CHS softball won't be playing in a preseason tournament this year.

Chiefland Area Athletic Association basketball is kicking into midseason form.
